    Photo, above: Muslim refugees arriving in New Orleans. See any women and children in this group? By Thomas Madison President Barack Hussein promised that he would be sending thousands of Syrian refugees to the US. Well, he is keeping that promise! The first transport of refugees arrived in New Orleans recently and will be resettled in Louisiana and 180 other American communities. See the list below to find a town close to you. So, it costs $16,000 a copy to resettle these Islamists into the United States. What the hell, we can afford it, right? NOT! We are rapidly approaching...

    Texas Monthly ^ | October 12, 2015 | Erica Grieder
    Results from a straw poll of libertarian Republicans highlight the senator’s shrewdness. Even before the 2016 presidential election cycle began, most observers expected the race for the Republican nomination to be a war of attrition—especially compared to the Democratic primary, where Hillary Clinton was expected to enter the race as a nearly prohibitive frontrunner. And so back in March, when Ted Cruz announced his campaign for president, it was easy to infer that Texas’s junior senator would be planning for a long campaign that would leave him as the last candidate standing at the end of the GOP nomination fight....

    The US Army has debuted a new shoulder patch that soldiers in Iraq can wear to represent their role in the ongoing fight against ISIS, USA Today reports. The patch features crossed scimitars, three stars, and a palm wreath. According to USA Today, the three stars denote the US land, air, and sea forces involved in the fight against ISIS. The palm wreath is meant to symbolize honor, while the crossed swords evoke the twin goals of the ongoing operations: the defeat of ISIS and the restoration of stability in the region. Currently, there are over 3,000 US Army personnel...

And the latest is that Bill Kristol is now trashing Trump, saying that he’d rather support a third party candidate than Trump as the nominee. So deep into his monologue on the topic, Levin mused that the CNN debate hosts should ask more nuanced version of the Republican nominee question Bret Baier asked in the Fox News debate, and they should ask it of...

    After undercutting John McCain's war hero status and brushing his own Vietnam deferments under the rug, Donald Trump has once again mythologized his own time in the military in hopes of bolstering his presidential campaign. The funniest part: someone out there buys it. According to a new report from ​The New York Times, Trump recently told biographer Michael D'Antonio that he "always felt that I was in the military" because of his education at a military-themed boarding school. As the ​Times ​writes: According to the book, Mr. Trump attended the New York Military Academy after years of rowdy and rebellious...

    For many years now grassroots conservatives have grumbled that the Republican establishment in Washington views them with contempt. Rarely has that contempt been displayed as brazenly as it was on this week’s episode of Fox News Sunday. During the show’s panel discussion, columnist George Will and Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute in particular showed how GOP bigwigs view their base. Will started the banter by suggesting that the popularity of insurgent GOP candidates was tantamount to “primal scream” psychotherapy where voters are venting their frustrations by backing political newcomers over their more traditional rivals. Brooks seconded Will’s thesis...

A State Department spokesman did not dispute the basic facts of the incident, confirming to Fox News the disagreement over the four classified emails as well as the internal complaints. But the spokesman said the concerns were unfounded. The whistleblowers told intelligence community officials...

    Article V of the Constitution is to the body of the nation what the Second Amendment is to our persons; both enshrine the right to self-defense. Their enumeration in the Constitution isn’t actually necessary, for both rights are derived from nature and nature’s God, existing long before the Constitution. They are thus unalienable, meaning we could not give them away if we wanted to. Still, it is hard to not regard both as bequests, as invaluable gifts from our Framers to every subsequent generation of Americans. Having pursued and ultimately failed at peacefully settling their differences with George III and...

    The defining moment of Donald Trump‘s Friday night campaign rally in Mobile, Ala. was when the GOP candidate for president called Jeff Sessions onto the stage. The four-term U.S. senator put on one of Trump’s trademark “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” hats. Sessions may well be the Senate’s most unrepentant racist. He was once nominated for a federal judgeship, but his history of racism — including praising the KKK and calling the Voting Rights Act “intrusive” — tanked his nomination. Trump isn’t supposed to be a serious candidate, and an endorsement from a U.S. senator is a huge step for him....

    Citing unnamed "federal law enforcement officials," The New York Times reports that the Justice Department probably will file federal hate crime charges against Dylann Roof in connection with last week's massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. Since Roof already faces nine murder charges in state court, where he will be subject to the death penalty if convicted, an additional federal prosecution seems gratuitous. It does not even offer the prospect of a more severe punishment. To the contrary, the maximum penalty Roof would face under federal law is life in prison, while there is a distinct possibility that...

    The U.S. Civil War was a war that never should have been fought. Some 620,000 men died because slavery, an inhumane and evil practice, was permitted in many portions of this country. The South gets most of the blame for that, but the north benefited from the regime as well, even though it didn’t directly practice enslavement at the time of the war. I used to think the war was a bit more complicated than I do now, having had my mind changed thanks to some relatively recent guided readings of President Abraham Lincoln. But long story short, the...

    Horne v. Department of Agriculture.decision is a big win for those of us who try to make a living in Ag Any net proceeds the raisin growers receive from the sale of the reserve raisins goes to the amount of compensation they have received for that taking. It does not mean that the raisins have not been appropriated for government use, nor can the government make raisin growers relinquish their property without just compensation as a condition for selling in interstate commerce. This is a major blow to government's program of trying to boost prices by keeping crops off the...

    Freddie Gray died in the custody of Baltimore police in April. Six officers have been charged in the death, which is said to have occurred due to spinal injuries he suffered while being thrown about the back of a police van during a rough ride to the station. But now Baltimore police are playing the victim card. They’ve engaged in a work slowdown that has resulted in a 43% decline in arrests citywide from April to May, and as high as 90% in some neighborhoods, according to Doug Donovan and Colin Campbell of The Baltimore Sun. Some say it’s because...

    Liberal butterball Michael Moore couldn’t help but weigh in on the devastating church massacre in Charleston. Sure, other liberals blamed it on white America, but Moore took it a step further.

    The boobs are fake, too. I’m talking about Rachel Dolezal, the recently fired Spokane NAACP president who told everybody she was black. As part of the national discussion about presenting ourselves as who we want to be, as opposed to who our DNA says we are, it’s worth noting that she dyes her hair and has had implants. And somehow we’ve got to navigate the social minefield of to what degree the world allows our physical and cultural identity to be of our own determination, and to what degree social norms can fence us in. How much is personal expression...
  • Bill Maher admits he tossed his ALL-liberal audience because they were too uptight

    As expected, Bill Maher has now weighed in on the non-troversy, that erupted this week when Jerry Seinfeld bemoaned the culture of political correctness on college campuses – and Maher went a step farther. Both Maher and his guest Comedy Central roast master Jeffrey Ross, agreed with Seinfeld, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their work. The big stunner came when Maher acknowledged that liberals have become so infected by political correctness, that they have been rendered all but incapable of finding his brand of humor amusing. As a result, Maher has had to modify the...

    Just when we thought the absurdity that marks every single day of Obama's reign could not possibly be surpassed, we learned that 4 hours (3 hours and 47 minutes to be precise) after the US president vowed to sign a new law banning bulk data collection by the NSA (named, for purely grotesque reasons, the "USA Freedom Act"), the Obama administration asked the secret Fisa surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months....

    Rioting has been reported at a concert at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. According to multiple reports, the Hot 97 Summer Jam concert grew rowdy Sunday night, prompting State Police to use tear gas outside the gates, the Asbury Park Press reported. A state police armored vehicle tear gassed the crowd because concert goers, angry the gates were closed, threw bottles, the Asbury Park Press said. State Police officers were wearing riot gear and had their batons out, according to NBC New York. NBC New York reported tasers may have been used.

    US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken claimed that “more than 10,000″ Islamic State fighters and commanders have been killed since the air campaign in Iraq began in August 2014 and subsequently in Syria in September 2014. If true, US intelligence estimates on the strength of the Islamic State are grossly underestimated.
